The Japanese defense forces couldn't stop Godzilla.....I captured the beast!
Spied this over Route 128 on my way home from work. Dirty windshield and strong sun glare I had to darken the image and crop out the sun. That's the only edit to what's probably my worse quality image. I figured some would get a kick out of it so I posted the pic on facebook. A few shares later it's gone world wide! Who would of thunk it?

Why I created this......

Born and raised in Gloucester, Ma fishing gets in your blood. Surrounded by the sea, kids here have a boat almost as much as kids elsewhere have bicycles! As I grew older my fishing ambitions gave way to what's around me. Although I still "drop a line" every so often, my attention wanders to the majesty of the natural light that make this place so special. Never is each day the same. The subjects may be the same but the light from the sea & sky will morph the subject into a form of art. For that reason artists have been drawn to these shores for several hundred years, they followed the light painting and sketching these surroundings. What artists capture with paint on canvas, I attempt to capture with a click.....if I'm lucky!

I guess that's a sort of Fish'n!

From Storm to Sunshine !

It was something to see,a storm front approaching Gloucester early evening from the northwest. Looking like a suspended wave, the front rolled over the city skyline in an impressive show of nature. Rumbles of thunder and a few bolts of lightning(which I didn't catch) added to the show. As it approached it seemed frozen in place for a time then the cloud bank actually started to roll before my eyes! I was expecting Charlton Heston to make an appearance! That was the time to get down off the hill and head home. As soon as I reached the front door the sky opened up!

Nature puts on shows that money can't buy.I wish I captured the lightning but the storm teased me! Every time I would re-position the tripod that's when the lightning showed! But seeing it live as the front started to roll over was awesome! Add to that the sun trying to show it's face behind the front took my breath away!

Between you and Steve the town of Gloucester is covered! As I told Steve, it's hard to believe you have such a beautiful view everyday.

"Glosta Logic"

It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
